Tourist Food Quotes


“France has found a unique way of controlling its unwanted critter population. They have done this by giving unwanted animals like snails, pigeons, and frogs fancy names, thus transforming common backyard pests into expensive delicacies. These are then served to gullible tourists, who will eat anything they can't pronounce.”

Chris Harris, 'Quotable Feast' by Sarah E. Parvis (2001)
 

 

Escargot - "Nobody is sure how this got started. Probably a couple of French master chefs were standing around one day, and they found a snail, and one of them said: 'I bet that if we called this something like "escargot," tourists would eat it.'  They they had a hearty laugh, because 'escargot' is the French word for 'fat crawling bag of phlegm.'"

'Dave Barry's Only Travel Guide You'll Ever Need' (1991)
